    Finding the right and effective pre-workout supplements can be hard. One should be really careful and thorough when it comes to buying and taking a workout supplement. I have witnessed some of my friends who are also working out and taking a supplement that is not as effective it would be appropriate for their workout routine. Thank you for these really helpful reviews so others can also get ideas in choosing the right pre-workout supplement. I’m glad to share these with my friends who are working out or planning to.

      Great question Cathy! Since every case may be different, we definitely recommend to all those who are pregnant or nursing that you check with your doctor before use of our products 🙂

    Hi! I work out 5-6 days a week and take protein after every workout. But I feel like I need some energy booster sometimes.
    Is it ok to take pre workout before and protein shake after the workout or is it better to stick with eaither or ?

    1. Devin Olsen

      It sounds like you have a great workout regimen going on Yana! As far as taking pre-workout before and protein after your workout, that’s definitely acceptable 🙂 In fact, a lot of women do that!

    Do any of your pre-workout ingredients have any negative effects on the kidneys or raise blood pressure long-term?

    1. Devin Olsen

      Good question Laura! None of the ingredients would be inherently harmful to an otherwise healthy adult, but we suggest speaking to your doctor for any medical concerns or questions 🙂

      Hi Mariam 🙂 Our pre-workout is definitely super awesome! While we always suggest speaking to a doctor before use if you have any medical concerns or questions, none of the ingredients are inherently harmful to otherwise healthy adults.

    Is it ok to take the pre-workout early in the morning on an empty stomach? Or is it best to eat a little something? I usually just roll out of bed at 5:00AM, get dressed and head straight to the gym. I then eat breakfast when I come back.

    1. Devin Olsen

      Thanks for asking Courtney! Taking your pre-workout before you’ve eaten is alright! As long as it doesn’t make your stomach feel uneasy or upset, you’re okay to take it in the morning 🙂

    Can you take pre workout before cardio workouts? I.e.: running or spinning

    Also I lift 2 days a week and I usually run for 15-20 minutes before hand is it okay to take the preworkout before those workouts?

    1. Christine Sanelli

      Yes, pre-workout is meant to be taken before your workouts and works great for any type of exercise!

  6. Jennifer

    Can I mix up the pre-workout ahead of time? I wake up at 5:00am & start my workout about 5:30am. Can I mix the preworkout the night before so I can drink it right when I get up?

    1. Christine Sanelli

      Hey Jennifer! Yes, you can but you’ll probably have to shake it up again.

  7. Martha

    If I workout twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening can I take this preworkout each time? One scoop each time? For a total of two scoops a day?

    1. Christine Sanelli

      Yes, you can but you may have a hard time sleeping if you take a pre-workout at night! However, we also carry a stimulant free pre-workout so that may be a good option for you!

    Hi can I take pre workout at 6pm before I go to gym. Hopefully it won’t effect my sleep.

    1. Amy Posey

      We always recommend talking with your doctor before taking a new supplement.

    When will all preworkout go to Stevia? I had the new lemon lime in my cart and cancelled it and bought the stim-free instead because it is sweetened with Stevia. But I would like the caffeine. Why is it not all formulate the same?

    1. Amy Posey

      Hi Leigh, we want to give our customers options that work best for them! Some people like traditional pre-workout and others prefer stim-free!

      1. Leigh

        I understand…just wish both options were sweetned with a natural sweeter ( stevia)

        1. Amy Posey

          We’ll keep coming out with new flavors of stim-free so keep an eye out!

    Hi I am 36 years old and overweight. I noticed that I don’t have enough energy during the day and I am gaining weight. I wonder if this pre workout will help me.lose weight and have energy throughout the day

    1. Alyson McDonald

      Hi Jireh!

      Pre-workout is a great energy inducing supplement, and is recommended to be taken 20-30 minutes before a workout. It can give you the extra edge you may need to maximize your efforts during your workouts!

      As for energy during the day, and weight loss, we have many other options that may be a good fit for you! Check out this blog and take the quiz to see which supplements would work for you and your fitness goals!

    Hi! I react to caffeine a little different to most. I never get the energy boost and crash immediately (makes me mellow and sleepy). I do need a pre-workout boost since I usually feel fatigued but concerned about the caffeine most pre-workouts contain. Does this contain a lot of it? Are there any recommendations? Thank you!

    1. Alyson McDonald

      Hi Diana! As we always recommend, if you have specific concerns or questions I would first consult a physician before using any products you are unsure of how they will affect you. As for our pre-workout, we have two types: one containing caffeine and one that does not.

      And please feel free to comment again if there are any other questions I can answer for you!

    I’ve heard of certain pre-workout ingredients that will cause you to fail a drug test, does IdealLean’s pre-workouts have any ingredients that will cause you to fail a drug test?

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Kasey. There aren’t any illegal ingredients in our products, and all are tested sage for consumption by the FDA. But it is going to depend on the kind of drug test you are taking. If yours has a requirement of no caffeine, you could fail since we do have caffeine in ours (but not stim-free).

  13. Doran Mateik

    Is your pre workout safe while breastfeeding? I need a boost of energy to get myself to the gym!

    1. Marcia Wheadon

      Hi Doran, I apologize that you haven’t gotten a response earlier. We always recommend that you speak with your doctor before trying something new like pre-workout.

  14. Taylor

    Can you please recommend some options for pre workout? I get overwhelmed going into stores and I don’t trust my own judgement. Something typically for someone new trying to lose weight that won’t make me too jittery (if that’s the case I usually use half a scoop). Thanks!

    1. McKenzie Pinckney

      Hi Taylor! Shopping for supplements can be very overwhelming. Quality over quantity is something to take into account here, for sure. IdealFit makes a great Pre-Workout and there’s all sorts of great flavors. The great thing about the IdealFit Pre-Workout is it’s made from natural caffeine, but if you’re sensitive to caffeine, I would start with half a serving and see how your body feels. A quality Pre-Workout should help you feel energized and motivated. I think you’d really like this one. You can check out all the flavors on this link 🙂 I recommend Blue raspberry. https://www.idealfit.com/pre-workout/all-pre-workouts.list

    Hello,

    What if I’m trying to become pregnant ? is it safe ?

    1. McKenzie Pinckney

      We definitely recommend you speak with your doctor beforehand!

    If you are taking the fat burner 2x a day, and BCAA 2x a day will the pre-workout amp up the fat burner or will it move out of your system b4 the fat burner starts?

    I also drink 1 espresso shot b4 my workout around 5:00 am and then 16 oz of water and 16 oz of BCAA at 5:30 with workout so my first fat burner happens between 9-10 am.

    Thank you!!

    1. Caitlin Peterson

      Hi Becky! If you are taking them that far apart it might start to move out of your system by then, but taking a pre-workout definitely won’t hurt if you are also taking a fat burner! But if you are also consuming an espresso shot before your workout, be careful if you are also wanting to incorporate pre-workout. You should not exceed over 400 mg of caffeine a day.
